  1. Salve Regina

    Salve Regina, Mater misericordiae

    O dulcis, Virgo Maria,

    Ad te clamamus, advocata nostra
    Ad nos converte, Salve Regina

  2. I’m Dreaming of Home

    I hear the mountain birds, the sound of rivers singing
    A song I’ve often heard,
    it flows through me now
    So clear and so loud
    I stand where I am and forever I’m dreaming of home
    I feel so alone, I’m dreaming of home

    It’s carried in the air, the breeze of early morning
    I see the land so fair, my heart opens wide
    There’s sadness inside
    I stand where I am and forever I’m dreaming of home
    I feel so alone, I’m dreaming of home

    This is no foreign sky, I see no foreign light
    But far away am I from some peaceful land
    I’m longing to stand
    A hand in my hand forever I’m dreaming of home
    I feel so alone, I’m dreaming of home

  3. Angele Dei

    Angele Dei
    Lumina – Guberna – Angele

    Angel of God, my guardian dear
    To whom God’s love does commit me here
    Ever this night be at my side
    And every day of my life with me abide
    To light and guard to rule and guide
    Illumina

    Angel of God, watch over me this night
    My guardian dear never lose me from your sight
    As shadows fall stay ever at my side
    And every day of my life with me abide
    To light and guard to rule and guide
    Illumina
    Angel of God, Angel of mine
    Amen

  4. Smile

    Smile though your heart is aching
    Smile even though it’s breaking.
    When there are clouds in the sky you’ll get by
    If you smile through your fear and sorrow
    Smile and maybe tomorrow
    You’ll see the sun come shining through for you

    Light up your face with gladness,
    Hide every trace of sadness
    Although a tear may be ever so near
    That’s the time you must keep on trying
    Smile, what’s the use of crying
    You’ll find that life is still worthwhile
    If you just smile

  5. Stabat Mater

    Stabat Mater, dolorosa
    Juxta crucem lacrymosa
    Contristatem et dolentum
    Lacrymosa, dolorosa
    Pia, pia Mater
    Dolorosa

  6. Benedictus Deus

    Benedictus Deus
    Benedictum Nomen Sanctum eius
    Benedictus Jesus Christus 
    Verus Deus et verus homo
     
    Benedictum Nomen Jesus
    Benedictus Sanctus Spiritus
    Benedictum Cor eius sacratissimum
     
    Gloria in excelsis Deo
    Amen

    Gloria in excelsis Deo
    Amen

  7. From a distance

    From a distance, the earth looks blue and green
    and the snow-capped mountains white
    From a distance the ocean meets the stream,
    and the eagle takes to flight
    From a distance, there is harmony
    and it echoes through the land
    It’s the voice of hope, it’s the voice of peace,
    it’s the voice of every man

    From a distance, we all have had enough
    and no one is in need
    There are no guns, no bombs and no disease,
    no hungry mouths to feed
    From a distance, we are instruments
    marching in a common band
    playing songs of hope, playing songs of peace,
    they’re the songs of every man

    God is watching us, God is watching us from a distance

    From a distance, you look like my friend
    even though we are at war
    From a distance, I cannot comprehend
    what all this fighting’s for
    From a distance, there is harmony
    and it echoes through the land
    It’s the hope of hopes, it’s the love of loves,
    it’s the voice of every man

  8. Three Ravens

    There were three ravens sat on a tree,
    down a down, hey down a down
    They were as black as they might be
    with a down, down, down
    Then one of them said to his mate
    ‘Where shall we now our breakfast take?’
    With a down, derry, derry, down, down

    Down in yonder deep green field,
    down a down, hey down a down
    There lies a knight slain under his shield,
    with a down, down, down
    His hounds they lie down at his feet,
    so well do they their masters keep
    With a down, derry, derry, down, down

    His hawks they fly so eagerly,
    down a down, hey down a down
    There’s no fowl that dare him come nigh,
    with a down, down, down
    Down there comes a fallow doe,
    as great with young as she might go
    With a down, derry, derry, down, down

    She lifted up his bloody head,
    down a down, hey down a down
    And kissed his wounds that were so red,
    with a down, down, down
    She got him up upon her back,
    and carried him to earthern lake
    With a down, derry, derry, down, down

    She buried him before the prime, a derry
    She was dead herself ere evensong time
    God send every gentle man such hawks, such hounds,
    And such a loved one

  9. Angel

    Angel
    Angel take your wings and fly, watching over me
    See me through my night time and be my leading light
    Angel you have found the way, never fear to tread
    You’ll be a friend to me, angel spread your wings and fly

    Voces angelorum gloria, dona eis pacem
    For you’re always near to me, in my joy and my sorrow
    For you ever care for me, lifting my spirit to the sky

    Where a million angels sing, in amazing harmony
    and the words of love they bring
    to the never-ending story
    A million voices sing to the wonder of the light
    So I hide beneath your wing
    You are my guardian, angel of mine

    Cantate caeli chorus angelorum
    Venite adoramus in aeternum
    Psallite saecula et saeculorum
    Laudate Deo in gloria

    Can you be my angel now watching over me
    Comfort and inspire me to see our journey through
    Can I be your friend indeed, from all cares set free,
    The clouds would pass away, then I’d be an angel too

  10. Wayfaring Stranger

    I am a poor wayfaring stranger,
    a travelling though this world of woe
    But there’s no sickness toil or danger
    in that bright land to which I go
    I’m going there to see my father,
    I’m going there no more to roam
    I’m just a going over Jordan,
    I’m just a going over home

    I know dark clouds will gather round me,
    I know my way is rough and steep
    Yet beauteous fields lie just before me,
    where those redeemed no more shall weep
    I’m going there to see my mother
    she said she’d meet me when I come
    I’m just a going over Jordan
    I’m just a going over home

    So I will wear a crown of glory
    when I get home to that good land
    And I will sing redemption’s story
    in concert with that heavenly band
    I’m going there to see my brother
    I’m going there no more to roam
    I’m just a going over Jordan
    I’m just a going over home

  11. Hymn to Mary

    Holy Mary draw through my heart
    the sweetest arrow of thy grace
    Lift my sorrow’s deepening shadow,
    so that I may see your face
    I know I will not be forsaken
    gently held in your embrace

    Blessed spirit whispering softly,
    cool the fires of my shame
    Even as I run from your arms
    my soul keeps calling out your name
    You were always right here inside
    each tear of joy every drop of rain

  12. San Damiano

    Sancta Maria

    Only you San Damiano, Lady of the Roses own
    Only you San Damiano, far from here but close to home

    I want you to go, same as me,
    I want you to know, all I see

    All corners of the world, a message to be heard
    with heart and soul

    Oh tranquility all around, peace and mystery to be found

    Travel the world and still, can other places fill
    your heart and soul

    Corner of paradise, a golden chain has tied
    us heart and soul

  13. Venite Adoremus

    Venite adoremus Deum
    Et procidamus ante Dominum

  14. Home

    Can there be a shining in the shadows,
    or may we see the flicker of a spark
    Is there calm amid the storm and madness,
    must we shelter ever in the dark

    Not a bird on the wing,
    nor a song they could sing
    for the loved ones we see no more,
    their suffering and pain

    But the sounds far and near
    in the air plain and clear,
    are the voices forever singing
    ‘love lives again’

    For now a new day wakes the dawn,
    spreading its light across the sky,
    when all misery and sadness will pass away

    For then we’ll find the harmony
    stirring our hearts across the land
    Through the sighing and the weeping
    we find our way – our way back home

    In our mourning, can we hold together?
    How can we face a future all alone?
    For the hope we hold amid the crying
    is the dream we find a way back home
